Traffic changes planned for I-65 in construction zone

You will see some traffic changes on Interstate 65 in Bartholomew and Jackson counties, starting this weekend.

INDOT says that contractors will be switching traffic on the northbound lanes of I-65 south of Walesboro starting Friday evening. That traffic will be moving to the new concrete pavement on the northbound side for about three miles through the end of the construction zone.

Both the median and the shoulder will stay closed while work continues. Southbound lanes will continue to be constricted until median work is done.

INDOT also says that the bridge over I-65 at Jackson County Road 800N will be closing for 55 days starting Monday while that bridge is rehabilitated. The bridge is expected to reopen in September. The work is dependent on the weather.
